Peter please...stop talking
I like Peter and Fable is a day one purchase around here but his jealously of the success of other games and genre's is getting irritating.

Make your game Peter and let the market decide on it's success.

this is one thing hes right about

Everything looks the same, plays the same, with the same stories

Then don't pick up a blockbuster hit? There are many other titles out there that probably deserve a try and while it may not appeal to most, it doesn't mean niche games don't exist. We all don't have to play blockbuster hits.

I've started to buy older games that I ignored first time round. Games that I thought were not good enough for full price.

And i've been surprised by how good some are.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1613d ago
Yea, I always research a game before I buy it. Most of the time those games will make you feel better about buying them than the AAA games that most people go for instead.

i am bored with you and your games

"I'm not saying we've quite got that yet but we're certainly getting towards that. I think mixing things up with emotional gameplay and mixing things up with the way you play and the feeling of connections and Kinect..."

Have I read this correctly? Is he saying that you need Kinect for a game to feel fresh? Corporate brainwashing at it's finest.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1613d ago
He's a fucking tool, just doing his job an using these same quotes over and over since Fable 2. "Emotions" and now "Kinect".

I liked the previous Fable games, but he lost me at Kinect.

Kinect games don't look fresh or fun to me, since I already went down the motion control road with Wii. While I don't think the idea of aiming for fresh is bad, Peter is barking up the wrong tree if he thinks adding Kinect makes a game fresh.

the world is tired of his words make a good game and shut up let your creation to speak for you.

I agree with him. This Gen is all about fps. Halo killzone cod bf MoH ect. But I also understand why this is being done by developers. Its all about cost and with the amount of studios we have lost this Gen they know they are safe with some types of games. Look at Alan wake split/second blur they were all new ips last year and sales were bad yet the games were good but if you look at halo and cod sales this is what people want at the mement and its like anything in business what's in at the moment keep it going until its not like gh ect.

This is why in a way MS have given us kinect as its opened the door for a few new games on the 360 like dance Central and kinect sports and also Sony with ps move for games like rope spin ext its a little change to the developers mind to make a new game that works with the new device.

PandaJenkins  +   1613d ago

i'm talking about fable journey , not journey should be obvious since we're talking about molyneux .. /s
PandaJenkins  +   1613d ago
I don't see how another game being part of a franchise instantly makes it 'samey'. Journey is absolutely nothing like the other games either..... I'm not trying to say that it will be good cause I'd rather have Fable 4 any day but it certainly is different.

All I know is I would have bought Fable 4, but I will not be buying Fable Journey.

On one hand I know that Kinect sold a lot, and MS needs games to support it, so okay make games for Kinect. On the other hand I want more exclusive games for the 360 I bought before Kinect came on the scene and changed Microsoft's focus.

Classic Molyneux...

Games used to be so diverse a decade ago, but it sucks now because there's an awful trend known as first person shooters.

I'm not gonna lie, I have fallen for this trend too, but I still enjoy other games like my rpg adventures and puzzles, but it seems I'm mostly playing fps games.

EDIT: Well, not a decade ago, but the early days of video games, like NES games.

Dude, it's been such an influx of shooters I've gone back to my PS2 to buy and finish some RPGs I missed back in the PS2 days. Doing Persona 3 right now.
PandaJenkins  +   1613d ago
I've been discovering tons of creative Indie games on steam which just make you wonder where all the creativity has gone in retail games >_>
Cablephish  +   1613d ago
Yeah, I got Ocarina of Time a few days ago, because I never had an n64 and never got to play it, but it's a really fun game even today. Haven't played a decent adventure game since ever, but like PandaJenkins said, Steam has many indie games that really aren't half bad.

Man can't people ever stop being lame and ever 'actually' read what he says and think about it. It's always 'hur I don't like Fable' or 'stop spouting crap' when hes just talking about things in general bloody hell people.

Also I definitely agree with him, though it is pretty clear as it is. Innovation is lacking a lot outside the indie scene. Sure there is still some, but most big releases are pretty unoriginal. I know people may hate Fable, but they are certainly unique games which I think deserves some praise.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1613d ago
But, that's the thing. They Aren't that unique! They're just adventure games set in a fantasy world. The only difference being that it's full of weird humor.
coryok  +   1613d ago
there are lots of games that are new and unique. maybe he should try going outside of his comfort zone.

maybe he should make one, he is a developer. instead of fable 6 he could make a new ip and make it into something different

oh... wait... he works for microsoft. you either make dance games, kinect games or halo
lochdoun  +   1613d ago
Bring back BC and finish it.

Okay Mr. Molyneux so when are we finally getting Dungeon Keeper 3...

IMO Dungeon Keeper was by far the best think that Peter Molyneux created.

Black & White got boring after a while, Fable seems to be a master class in over-hype/undersell for each game, but Dungeon Keeper endless hours of being distinctly evil always amused me, still play DK2 every now and then.

I'm tired of you Repeating yourself year after year after year.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1613d ago
But in all seriousness Indie development such as XBLA and PSN network titles seems to be where its at when it comes to innovation. but I too have been sucked into contemporary modern FPS games. But thank god thats not my main genre I enjoy games like fable and action adventure games.

Most indie developers strive to hit a mainstream status and try to sign with a publisher(which is a bad idea) but not all indies wanna get that status some wanna stay underground and create hit games for the underground and build a fanbase.

But only block buster hits get all the credit and make the most money and it seems like everything else sucks if it doesn't have a huge name behind it. Thank god for Bioware and Bethesda I truly support games that require change and innovation.
